Guests that stayed at this property said

Guests have noted the property to be nice and clean, which indicates a high level of cleanliness throughout the cottage.

The location is highly praised for its stunning views and proximity to Hebden Bridge, with easy access by foot, bus, or car, and the availability of local amenities and attractions.

The cottage is described as cosy and comfortable, with very comfortable beds, though a suggestion for a curtain over the stairway indicates a minor comfort improvement could be made.

Facilities are generally well-received with thoughtful touches like local maps and books. However, a suggestion for an extractor fan in the bathroom indicates room for improvement in facilities and maintenance.

While guests have mentioned thoughtful touches such as local maps and books, there is no mention of gifts, and therefore it cannot be determined if gifts are a consistent offering, leading to a null score in this category.

About this property

Enjoying stunning views across the Calder Valley, Weaver's View in the picturesque village of Heptonstall, West Yorkshire is a delightful, two-bedroom, 17th-century cottage. Set on a cobbled street in the heart of Heptonstall, just paces away from a charming pub, shop and cafes, whilst within driving distance of both the Peak District National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park, Weaver’s View offers four guests the perfect base to explore the region. Park up and unload your belongings, making your way indoors to kickstart your break. Be greeted by a well-equipped kitchen, where you can rustle up delectable meals to be enjoyed around the dining table, as the wine is poured and conversations flow. Boasting an elegant blend of characterful charm and original features, including the stone fireplace, mullioned windows and a wealth of history contained in the walls, this is the perfect spot from which to truly escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. After dinner, cosy up in the living/dining room with the gas fire alight, planning your impending itinerary, before completing your nightly routine in the sleek bathroom. Climb into either the plush king-size bed, or the sumptuous double bed, before awakening to traverse West Yorkshire, starting off locally in Heptonstall; here you will locate a Post Office and The White Lion pub, with further amenities located in Hebden Bridge. You can stock up on the essentials at the shops and post office only paces away, or why not treat your loved ones to a sweet treat at the local café, which you can take away for a scenic picnic. The village itself was also the location of the recent BBC series, ‘The Gallows Pole’ and you can catch a glimpse of the back of the cottage in some scenes; it is also well-known for the hit series ‘Happy Valley’. Within the proximity of 40 Northgate, you'll locate several National Trust properties and landmarks, including Midgehole Crags and Hardcastle Crags, whilst the Heptonstall Museum offers insight into the local history; outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy hiking towards Lumb Hole Falls, offering a beautiful backdrop for a picnic. Travel north to visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum, board the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway for a guided tour of the county, and trek alongside Bronte Waterfall, whilst the Ogden Water Country Park offers the perfect place for bird watching. With various footpaths at your feet and Hebden Bridge also within reach, there are plenty of opportunities to explore your picturesque setting on foot. Well-positioned to reach the likes of Halifax, which has links to the famous English diarist, Anne Lister, Leeds and Huddersfield, there's plenty to see and do with 40 Northgate as your abode.

The village of Heptonstall is set high on a prominent hillside above its close neighbour, Hebden Bridge. Heptonstall is one of West Yorkshire's best kept secrets; a wonderfully preserved village with a main street that has changed very little in the last 200 years. Formerly an important centre for hand-loom weaving, the village still retains its original trading hall, while the old Grammar School, by the churchyard, is now a museum testifying to the village's illustrious past. The churchyard is also the burial home for the American poet, novelist & short-story writer Sylvia Plath, perhaps best known for her collections of published poems & novel "The Bell Jar". Heptonstall was a place she stayed in before & during her marriage to the poet Ted Hughes. In the centre are the two remaining pubs, the Cross Inn, believed to date from the early 17th century, and the White Lion, rumoured to be haunted by a Roundhead on a horse, a throwback to when the village was besieged during the Civil War. Nearby is the attractive town of Hebden Bridge, while the area is a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway. Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales, is an easy and scenic car ride away.

    Really tastefully decorated. Had everything we needed. Very comfortable beds. Nice and clean. Set in an ancient village with lots of character, a great find for us. Maybe a couple of suggestions for the owners would be to have an extractor fan in the bathroom, and a curtain over the doorway to the stairs in the living room in the winter. Neither detracted from our stay must say. Enjoyed Weavers cottage and would definitely come back.

  • Catherine

    Excellent location with wonderful views, near to Hebden Bridge by foot, bus or car. Can’t recommend this place enough

  • Sarah

    The walk into HB via the road is easier but longer, we chose the route via the steep cobbled lane (the buttress, fine if the weather is dry) and there is always the 596 bus back!. We had great evening meal in Il MULINO in Hebdon and a visit to the Hope Gallery in HB is worth it. The walk to Hardcastle Craggs and Gibson Mill (about 6 1/2 miles) is slightly challenging but enjoyable. We walked back via Slack village and ended with a coffee/cake in the lovely coffee house in Heptonstall! Can recommend both pubs in Heptonstall and the local produce in the Post office and the wine choices! A great rejuvenating stay. Thank you
